cuar01_bourgeois07101Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris on Christmas day. She emigrated to the United States to study at the Art Students League in New York. Primarily a sculptor, she has worked in many different mediums, including rubber, wood, stone, metal, and fabric. She often speaks of her work  in symbolic terms with the main focus being “relationships”. She finds inspiration from her early childhood. Her art explores the themes and paradoxes of childhood, memory, and sexuality. Her work conveys feelings of anger, betrayal and jealousy, but with feeling of playfulness. Her late work consist of very specific erotic imagery. Her most famous works are possibly the large spider structures, titled Maman. Maman now stands outside Tate Modern in London.
